   Review of Atlantic call minutes

   Review of Pacific call minutes

   Membership status review

      - voting status is determined by the following:
        - existing voting members must not miss two consecutive meetings to
          maintain voting status
        - non-voting members must attend two consecutive meetings to obtain
          voting status
      - what can we do to recruit more volunteers to the TC to share
        in the work?

UBL 2.1 Status

   - 60-day public review ended 15 October 2013 23:59UTC:


   - zero comments about the review were posted:


   - AGREED (pending Atlantic call) that no changes are needed to the
     Candidate OASIS Standard

   - per OASIS process 3.4.2, TC Administrator must start the ballot for
     OASIS Standard approval within 7 days of notification
     - Ken to notify TC Administration after Atlantic call

   - during the 14-day voting period, TC members need to follow up with
     OASIS Organizational Members to encourage them to vote
     - we need 15% of the voting OASIS Membership to approve

UBL 2.1 UML and ASN.1 Committee Notes

   - Committee Note 01 for both specifications are published


   - we need to create Committee Note 02 for both with the finalized
     document models from UBL 2.1 Committee Specification 1
   - the revised ASN.1 files have been posted by Paul Thorpe (with thanks!)


     - has anyone on the TC with the appropriate ASN.1 tools worked with
       these schemas and the example instances from our distribution
       to give some quick review of this material?
     - suggestions from last meeting:
       - we unzip the package and have the schemas in clear text for citation
       - we add installation instructions and use historical subdirectories so
       that the notes can be installed on top of a distribution
- re: UML diagrams, Tim has posted a new set of diagrams for the revised Committee Note
   - it will help if these are complete before UBL 2.1 is declared an OASIS
     - minimum time of readiness is three weeks from today
     - Ken will produce revised draft committee note 02s when possible

UBL TC next steps

    - what promotional issues need to be addressed?
      - UBL 2 is an organic thing that can be grown
      - what do we do for implementation support?
      - should we write a companion document of how to use the specification?
      - industry-specific documentation?
      - make it easier to find what is relevant without changing the actual
      - what about updating the International Data Dictionary?
        - who can we find to help with this?
      - Multi-stakeholder Forum on ICT Standardization
        - addressing commission's new more open policy on open standards
          including OASIS, W3C, IETF, etc.
        - this could include sanctioning of UBL as a standard for use in
        - Tim to follow up with Jaimie
    - what subject matter issues need to be addressed?
      - communications with outsourcing warehouses
      - more transportation co-ordination issues
      - communications with transportation regulatory organizations
    - what technical issues need to be addressed?
      - are any schema changes needed?
      - at the least we need to publish the NDR as soon as possible

   Will anyone be requesting a leave of absence in the near future?  For
   privacy reasons, this discussion will be kept off of the minutes.
